HRD - Motion to Extend Military Pay Differential

Tagged Passions:military

Agenda Item : 3.

Summary: RECOMMENDATION from Director of Human Resources Department to approve Military Leave pay differential for employees called to active duty

status during a time of war or state of emergency
Tagged Passions:emergency, military, and human resources

Background: The Human Resources Department recommends that City Council adopt a motion to authorize an extension period to December 31, 2021 during

which City employees called to active duty during a time of war or state of emergency may be compensated when their military salary is less than their city salary as specified in Chapter 14, Article IV.
Tagged Passions:council, emergency, military, and human resources

Chapter 14, Article IV, of the City of Houston Code of Ordinances, authorizes full-time employees, who are called to active duty during a time of war

or state of emergency for services relating to the war or emergency and who are granted military leave, compensation when their military salary is less than their city salary. This Article limits the initial authorization to a period of 90 calendar days from the date the employee is called to active duty during a time of war or state of emergency.
Tagged Passions:compensation, grant, ordinance, services, emergency, and military

Council has previously approved extensions. Currently, several City of Houston employees have received military orders calling them to active duty

during a time of war or state of emergency which may qualify them for compensation under this article.
Tagged Passions:compensation, council, emergency, and military

The current approved period expires on or about October 23, 2019. It is not expected that the time of war or state of emergency will be resolved by

October 23, 2019. To avoid undue disruption to the economic circumstances of these City employees, who continue to be called to active duty during a time of war or state of emergency, the Human Resources Department recommends that City Council authorizes an extension period to December 31, 2021 during which City employees called to active duty during a time of war or state of emergency may be compensated when their military salary is less than their city salary as specified in Chapter 14, Article IV.
Tagged Passions:council, emergency, military, and human resources

In the event that the time of war or state of the emergency ends prior to the expiration of this extension, then this order will be rescinded.

PLN-MTFP 2019

Agenda Item : 4.

Summary: RECOMMENDATION from Interim Director Planning Development Department to approve amendments to the 2018 Major Thoroughfare and Freeway Plan

(MTFP) and authorize publication of the 2019 MTFP in map form - DISTRICTS B - DAVIS; C - COHEN; H - CISNEROS and K - CASTEX-TATUM
Tagged Passions:planning, development, and Development

Background: The Planning and Development Department (P D) recommends City Council approve the amendments to the 2018 Major Thoroughfare and Freeway

Plan, as submitted in Attachment 1, and authorize publication of the 2019 MTFP map, as submitted in Attachment 2.
Tagged Passions:planning, council, development, and Development

The City of Houston Major Thoroughfare and Freeway Plan (MTFP) identifies transportation corridor alignments and establishes the required

rights-of-way for major roadways in the City and its extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). Chapter 33 (Section 33-37) of the Code of Ordinances requires that the Planning Commission prepare and submit the MTFP annually to City Council. In developing the annual amendments to the MTFP, the Commission may consider deleting, realigning, or reclassifying streets designated on the plan or adding one or more streets to the plan. An amendment approved by the Commission is not effective until the MTFP is approved by City Council.
Tagged Passions:planning, ordinance, council, boards and commissions, streets, transportation, and corridor

The MTFP was initially adopted in 1942 as a way to plan for and preserve a long-term transportation network that would support the rapidly growing

city. In 1966, the plan was expanded to include the ETJ. Today, the MTFP uses street classifications identifying the preferred right-of- way width dimensions as well as the rules governing development along the right-of-way. Classifications include Freeways/Tollways, Major Thoroughfares, Transit Corridor Streets, Collector Streets (Major Collectors and Minor Collectors), and Local Streets.
Tagged Passions:streets, development, transportation, Development, and corridor

The MTFP is important for several reasons:

It identifies long-term roadway needs for Houston and the ETJ; It ensures that development and re-development activities dedicate adequate roadway

right-of- way to maintain a well-connected street network as the area grows; It helps govern development that takes place along each of the specific classifications on the map; It provides a coordinated plan that is used by public agencies when making decisions related to transportation within the City of Houston and its ETJ; MTFP classifications are used within HPW s Infrastructure Design Manual (IDM) to define how
Tagged Passions:streets, development, transportation, and Development

roads will be designed and constructed; and

Tagged Passions:streets

P D is responsible for administering the nine-month public review process for MTFP amendments. The annual process includes multiple opportunities for

soliciting and incorporating public comments on proposed amendments. The 2019 MTFP amendment review process included the following milestones:

A pre-application meeting with applicants, a thorough review of all applications by P D staff, and coordination with agency stakeholders, including

Houston Public Works and Harris County Engineering Department (January 21, 2019 March 15, 2019). A workshop with the Planning Commission for preliminary review and discussion about the applications (May 9, 2019). A public open house at which the public was encouraged to view and comment on the applications and staff and applicants were available to answer questions (June 12, 2019). A public hearing before Planning Commission (August 1, 2019). A Planning Commission discussion and vote on eight of the nine amendments (August 29, 2019). A Planning Commission deferral of Carver/Cebra proposed amendment (August 29, 2019). A Planning Commission discussion and vote on the Carver/Cebra deferred amendment (September 5, 2019).
